What is the Batory font?
Avantgarde fonts Batory and Batoswash are monoline sansserifs designed by Bo Berndal. The futuristic Batory (think Bladerunner and Total Recall) and the spicier relative Batoswash come in three versions: Narrow, Middle and Wide.
The font family is available in Truetype and Postscript for Mac and PC.
Bo Berndal, born 1924, has been designing typefaces over 56 years, for Monotype, Linotype and other foundries. More…
“Batory is a monoline reaction to my many calligraphic fonts”, says Bo Berndal. “That is also the reason I did several widths instead of weights. Batory has short stems and high x-height. Batoswash is a Batory gone wild!”
The successful Batory has already been used for logotypes, vignettes in magazines and as headline type.
